It has been great fun watching this mural come to life.  It is truly something that will be cherished in Fort Wayne for many decades to come!  I must also admit that a wonderful friendship has begun which I hope will continue for many decades as well!

I video taped Julia signing the mural and even though we didn’t rehearse it or even discuss the possibility of it, we launched right into an interview.  I left in some of our banter because I think it shows the true spirit of this great artist!




Tomorrow, an unveiling, at least mentally, will be held.  Press release:

Thursday, September 17th
